Hi guys;
I have a small plant growing at home on the window, I'm keeping her short and bushy(she's beautiful!) I want to know how i can extract the oil from the fresh leaves, I would like to use the oil in an electronic cigarette that burns flavored oils... I've read and heard how dangerous it can be to extract this oil...is there any way i can safely extract small amounts of oil at home on the stove??? ...School me people...!

Welcome.....

You've posted in the wrong sub forum.

There have been posts about this in this sub: http://forums.cannab...Board=17&page=1 although for it to work you'd need some very expensive lab equipment.

Just trying to make basic oil will not work as 1) it will distroy your atomizer, and 2) its not worth the hassle for the VERY minor effect you'd get from it in an e-cig.

Personally, I don't care if it never works, as I hate the association of MJ use with e-cigs with the current struggles e-cigs already have with authorities (FDA & Health Canada).

That being said, you obviously are entitled to your own opinion and behaviours.

Hey thanks for letting me know, I had no clue as to the damage of the atomizer...so extracting oil is best used for food right...?
I figured it would cut down on smoking paper...oh well...on to the next brilliant idea wink

Thanks again

There are different sorts of extraction methods to make concentrates. Some made to drink as a liquid, some to cook with, others to flash vaporize (using a titanium or quartz plate on a swing arm or a quartz nail and pipe/bong.

I suggest you search out "concentrates" and enjoy reading the many process and personal thoughts on intake.

Peace

I like iso resin personally, it's quick, cheap, and pretty darn good. I dab mine on a quartz nail.

I assume it's the same as a glass or titanium nail, only made from quarts. You heat them, cover them, then dab your oil on them, and draw through your bong.

I'm not sure if they come as an alternate type of bowl, or as a whole apparatus though. I've actually never been able to find one in a store, or even at an online retailer, though I've only been looking for a few months, need something to smoke that oil blah

The Healthstone is superior to all of the described methods for smoking extracts.

You loose no smoke and there are no fancy items to heat, thus wasting expensive butane or risking burns or fire.

And I have tried and/or own them all (plate, nail, ect.)

You can pick them (Healthstones) up at Aqualabs too. Pretty cheap compared to other items and the stone fits most bowls.


Don't buy one of their fancy pipes. The stone works best in a downstem.
